Hiperson is a five-piece art rock band from Chengdu, China. Unlike previous generations of Chinese musicians, these twenty-somethings reject the shackles of recent history, harkening back to the essential, sensitive, poetic golden age of rock’n’roll. Their temperament of refreshing simplicity has led Hiperson on a path of rapid achievement. Front woman Chen Sijiang’s unique voice, brilliant and gorgeous as it is, does not draw the audience’s full attention away from Hiperson’s compelling bass-lines or the complex, precise rhythmic interplay between drums and guitar.
In the second decade of the 21st century, Hiperson has become the leader of a new generation of Chinese rock musicians beginning to revisit the expressive charm of their native tongue.
